Excitment in Brussels at the first european president, Europe is rising as a force to rival the United States and other world powers.

Europe is now the wealthiest region in the world.
Europes population is going to reach about half a billion next year and its GDP is just behind america and China combined.

With 71,000 troops stationed overseas, it is just now second to america

This makes a very interested read, and this is what we can expect to see in the future, move over america, the time is now for the United States of Europe.

Europe is a continent comprised of how many countries? 30 or so? I'd expect that many countries combined to rival any other single country.

Including the U.S.

There are 50 countries in europe, and 27 in the union.

700 million live in europe, 500 mill in the union.

It's about time.

Now lets pull out all American forces in the hemisphere and stop American aid in Europe alotgether.

They can handle it.

We have something that america has never heard of, history.

Something, that makes all our countries, think nowadays except uk, which is still the anglo american empire.

Will be interesting as long as blair is not the leader, we will wait and see. But we should one day be at least a match for the biggest bully of the world, at least we will have the cautious approach that the violence associated with america, we do not mostly have nowadays in europe.

Hey, we have history.

It's just hard to publicize it when a bunch of semi-albinos covered in lice slaughter most of your historians, put your people into concentration camps, and beat your culture out of your children.

Give us a little time, man, we're still picking our asses up after that whole "genocide" thing.
